Najib has been in jail since Aug 23, when a five-judge Federal Court panel upheld his conviction, RM210 million fine and 12-year jail term for embezzling RM42 million belonging to SRC International Sdn Bhd.
He faces four other criminal trials related to the 1MDB financial scandal, including two that have yet to start.
He has been released from prison twice so far to attend two ongoing criminal trials; the first on August 25 for embezzling RM2.28 billion from 1MDB, and the second day for resuming the alleged falsification of the auditor-general’s audit report on 1MDB.
Najib is scheduled to return to the High Court tomorrow to continue the main 1MDB trial.
